Based on his 45 years as a woodworker and 25 years as a teacher of handcrafts, in his newest book Stowe argues that human beings have a natural need to express themselves creatively through tangible work. The use of one’s hands and whole body to make physical things and reshape our surroundings promotes both physical and mental health and fosters a sense of mastery in both young and adult students.

Stowe presents a clear call for the renewal of American education through a strategic implementation of the hands, and notes the value of creating useful beauty in service to others and our own growth as well.

Published by Linden Publishing, the book sells for $16.95
